Particle sorting chips – Sheath flow

The particle sorting chips applying a sheath flow should be used with pulsation free syringe pumps. Velocity of the sheath flow should be significantly higher than the one of the sample stream and two streams entering through side-channels provide a sheath flow. The sorting can be done either by applying positive or negative pressure via the sampling channels at the end of the main channel. Five outlet channels with two junctions for sorting give the option to collect at two different locations target cells.
